  Close to Famous by Joan Bauer

Review by: Lindsey K.
Ohio, Grade 7

In the book Mama and her daughter are drove out of their hometown by and Elvis impersonator that is very abusive. Then he tried to get them to come back to see him after he abused Mama.

I didn't like a part of the book because kids are mean to Foster because she can't read. I did like that she marched up to Miss Charleena's door and said she was going to read the cookbook if it killed her.
